During February, daytime events include guided walking tours of Gilroy’s historical district, Gilroy Hot Springs, and art shows at the Gilroy Art Alliance.

Wine lovers enjoy Gilroy’s award winning wineries with special events especially for Valentine’s week. Solis Winery’s annual chocolate and wine pairing satisfies the chocoholic in all of us, and Fortino Winery has a delicious sweetheart surprise in store.

For evening events, flex your golden pipes at Gilroy’s Station 55 Family Karaoke Nights. If you’d rather let someone else hold the mic, Station 55 has free mid-week comedy shows, and live music on Friday and Saturdays.

Have your heart set on live theater? Gilroy’s local Limelight Actors Theater Presents a comedy with a twist of serious– “Alone Together Again” preformed at the Gilroy Art Center, downtown Gilroy.
